Romans 11:6

6 a  But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works; otherwise grace would no longer be grace.

Galatians 1:6-9

No Other Gospel

6I am astonished that you are b  so quickly deserting c  him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to d  a different gospel 7 e  not that there is another one, but f  there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8But even if we or g  an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you h  let him be accursed. 9As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received i  let him be accursed.

Hebrews 6:4-6

4For it is impossible, in the case of those j  who have once been enlightened, who have tasted k  the heavenly gift, and l  have shared in the Holy Spirit, 5and m  have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6and n  then have fallen away, to restore them again to repentance, since o  they are crucifying once again the Son of God to their own harm and holding him up to contempt.

Hebrews 10:38-39

38 p  but my righteous one shall live by faith,
and if he shrinks back,
my soul has no pleasure in him.”

39But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls.

Hebrews 12:15

15See to it that no one q  fails to obtain the grace of God; that no r  root of bitternesssprings up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled;

2 Peter 2:20-22

20For if s  after they have escaped the defilements of the world t  through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome u  the last state has become worse for them than the first. 21For v  it would have been better for them never to have known the way of righteousness than after knowing it to turn back from w  the holy commandment delivered to them. 22What the true proverb says has happened to them: “The x  dog returns to its own vomit, and the sow, after washing herself, returns to wallow in the mire.”

2 Peter 3:17-18

17You therefore, beloved y  knowing this beforehand z  take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability. 18But aa  grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. ab  To him be the glory both now and to the day of ac  eternity. Amen.
